PSA: Gift Card Scam

The IRS, Law Enforcement, or other government agencies and utility companies will never ask you for gift cards as payment or as a form of posting bail for a family member. Law Enforcement and government agencies will not ask you to pay with gift cards in exchange for not being arrested for traffic, criminal or jury duty warrants. Do not purchase and provide any gift card numbers to persons who are demanding it as a form of payment or to have a family member released from jail. Gift cards are for gifts, not for payment. Please report any scams to the Wayne Police Department at 973-694-0600.

You can learn more about scams from the FTC.
